Other specified congenital malformations of skin

    2015 Billable Code POA Exempt

  • Q82.8 is a billable ICD-10-CM code that can be used to indicate a diagnosis for reimbursement purposes.
  • On October 1, 2015 ICD-10-CM will replace ICD-9-CM in the United States, therefore, Q82.8 - and all other ICD-10-CM codes - should only be used for training or planning purposes until then.
  • This is the American ICD-10-CM version of Q82.8. Other international ICD-10 versions may differ.

Clinical Information
  • A congenital or acquired disorder affecting the elastic fibers of the skin. It is characterized by loss of elasticity resulting in loosening and folding of the skin.
  • A group of connective tissue diseases in which skin hangs in loose pendulous folds. It is believed to be associated with decreased elastic tissue formation as well as an abnormality in elastin formation. Cutis laxa is usually a genetic disease, but acquired cases have been reported. (from Dorland, 27th ed)
  • A rare inherited disorder that affects the skin and many other parts of the body, including the bones, eyes, nose, hair, nails, teeth, testes, and ovaries. People with rothmund-thomson syndrome have an increased risk of osteosarcoma (bone cancer).
  • An autosomal dominant disorder characterized by a history of multiple relapses and remissions of pemphigus lesions.
  • An autosomal dominantly inherited skin disorder characterized by recurrent eruptions of vesicles and bullae mainly on the neck, axillae, and groin. Mutations in the atp2c1 gene (encoding the secretory pathway ca2++/mn2++ atpase 1 (spca1)) cause this disease. It is clinically and histologically similar to darier disease - both have abnormal, unstable desmosomes between keratinocytes and defective calcium-transporting atpases. It is unrelated to pemphigus vulgaris though it closely resembles that disease.
  • An autosomal recessive inherited syndrome usually caused by mutations in the recql4 gene. It is characterized by poikilodermatous skin changes, sparse hair, cataracts, small stature, skeletal abnormalities, and an increased predisposition to cancer, particularly osteosarcoma.
  • An autosomal recessive syndrome occurring principally in females, characterized by the presence of reticulated, atrophic, hyperpigmented, telangiectatic cutaneous plaques, often accompanied by juvenile cataracts, saddle nose, congenital bone defects, disturbances in the growth of hair; nails; and teeth; and hypogonadism.
  • Group of connective tissue diseases in which skin hangs in loose pendulous folds; believed to be associated with decreased elastic tissue formation as well as an abnormality in elastin formation; usually a genetic disease, but acquired cases have been reported.
